Hear the Original Sample in G.O.O.D. Music's "Mercy"

Kanye West has the internet going nuts with his latest G.O.O.D. Music release, “Mercy.” Aside from Yeezy himself, the song features Big Sean, Pusha T, and 2 Chainz. But the voice you hear at the top of the track may be less well known to rap heads—even though he’s a legend in the dancehall. That’s Fuzzy Jones, whose gift for manic bugged-out braggadoccio made his dubplate intros a must for any selector looking to execute a soundbwoy in a clash situation. Before his death in 2005—when he was hit by a car while riding his bike near Arrow’s dub studio in Kingston, Jamaica—Fuzzy became so well known that his voice was immortalized on numerous soundclash-themed records like the classic King Tubby’s disc seen above. Read on to find out where the “Mercy” sample came from…
The G.O.O.D. Music track, produced by Lifted, opens with a lengthy sample of one of Fuzzy’s greatest intros, taken from Super Beagle’s “Dust A Soundboy” on Winston Riley’s mighty Stalag Riddim.

Fuzzy gets more shine about halfway through “Mercy” as his typically bizarre stream-of-consciousness insult plays out at length. Here’s the full text for the benefit of our patois-impaired friends: “WELL—It is a weeping and a moaning and a gnashing of teeth in the dancehall—and who no have teeth gwine run pon them gums. Caw when time it comes to my sound, which is the champion sound, the bugle has blown so many times, and it still have one more time left, caw the amount of stripe weh deh pon our shoulder. Nah bother sound test we, and them can’t test we. COME Super Beagle and your girl!” Big up Fuzzy, anywhere you deh. It’s all G.O.O.D.

1000 to 1 lifted brought this to Yeezy 90% done. If Ye added anything it's the orchestral build-up during his verse. But Lift is a genius and had a million beats like this before he signed to GOOD.

in a interview yesterday.. Lifted (Phoenix-based producer) spoke to bootlegKev (Las Vegas DJ) about the beat and said Kanye is the one who came up with this sample. I hate when n*ggas a.ssume and speak on sh*t they know nothing about! Get off lifted d!ck n*gga!

yeah Lifted is signed to Kanye's label so he probably presented Kanye with a beat and Ye may have suggested adding that sample
